Episode 42 is our first episode back with a guest, and this week it’s Aaron Hill, Web Programmer/Analyst at the Cornell Hotel School. We chatted about Aaron’s most recent project – a complete redesign and restructure of the Cornell Hotel School website – and all the small details that went into the process. This tangents into a conversation about fonts, footers, and brand consistency between schools within a university. We also chat about the ghosts of social media’s past; MySpace, Friendster, Xanga, and more…and Jackie reminds everyone how young she is…again.
Episode 44 welcomes Jake Dolan, Director of Web and Digital Communications at Montana State University. We chat about different conferences we’ve attended and plan to attend, even if some of them are outside the scope of higher education, inspiring a discussion on the importance of understanding our jobs without necessarily looking at them through the lens of a college or university. We talk about the evolution of the web, and how each of us experienced its growth in our own way, plus some juicy gossip about Lougan’s first ever website. Jake closes the show by explaining how the web is maintained at Montana State; and it’s not only one person’s responsibility.
